Nano Dimension (NASDAQ: NNDM) applies its novel and proprietary technologies to revolutionize the way electronics are made through advanced 3D printing. Pioneering the multi-billion-dollar market for printed circuit board (PCB) prototypes and 3D circuitry, Nano Dimension’s solutions replace traditional prototyping with quick, in-house alternatives.
PCBs are found in a diverse lineup of industries, including consumer electronics, automotive and industrial, telecom, medical devices, defense, aviation and aerospace. In a traditional setting, the process for PCB prototypes starts with a design file that is sent to a third-party manufacturer. Final prototype design is slow, often taking several weeks to complete and snagging time-to-market for the final product.
Prototyping can be expensive, and at times causes concerns regarding the security of a company’s IP. According to Nano Dimension’s Printer Readiness Survey 2016, 37% of companies polled spend $10k-$50k a year on prototyping, while 16% spend upward of $100k. The same survey shows that 63% of companies are concerned about IP security when sending their designs to a third party.
Addressing these and other concerns, Nano Dimension’s unique products combine three advanced technologies — 3D inkjet, 3D software and nanomaterials – to provide in-house prototyping that can be completed within hours. This enables faster time-to-market, freedom to innovate, and protects IP from outside parties.
Nano Dimension’s novel and proprietary technologies enable the use of conductive and dielectric inks for ultra-rapid prototyping of complex, high-performance multilayer circuit boards. One of the company’s primary products, the PCB 3D printer, is the result of combining advanced breakthroughs in inkjet technology, 3D printing and nanotechnology.
Market response for Nano Dimension’s solutions has been remarkably positive. The printers have been integrated by top 10 industry leaders in the fields of defense, consumer goods, fintech, CM and PCB. Additionally, more than 80 NDAs have been signed to facilitate collaboration and evaluation. The company protects its IP with a portfolio of 21 patents/patent applications, including a patent for the printing of stem cells.
Nano Dimension was co-founded in 2012 by company CEO Amit Dror, who has vast experience in project, account and sales management while serving in a variety of roles with ECI Telecom Ltd., Comverse Technology, Inc. and Eternegy Ltd., as well as Milk & Honey Distillery Ltd., which he also co-founded in 2012. He is joined by CTO Sharon Fima, a print technology development expert with more than 15 years of experience; COO Dagi Ben-Noon, a mechanical engineer with extensive experience designing equipment for military and civilian clients; and CBO Simon Fried, who brings 15 years of experience as a strategy consultant and marketing advisor to both multinationals companies and start-ups across a broad range of industries.
